. number two, as bill clinton and president obama point out, the math doesn't add up when you're trying to do this just on deductions. you need to do both deductions and loopholes and, of course, raise the rate. that's the only way the math works. and as far as hurt the economy, let me say for the 10,000th time, bill clinton raised tax rates on the top 2% in 1993 and we then proceeded to grow the economy by 23 million jobs. so, that's a bunch of bull, speaker boehner. >> let's go back to alex with the same question. i will argue that even though he hasn't specified the deductions or the loopholes he's going to close, the governor is right, there isn't enough at the top to close to make up for this advantage they have now but it seems he's accepting the moral argument. he's saying, the rich should get socked, too. that was an amazing admission for him to say to that. your thoughts. >> i agree with you. the fact that john boehner is out there saying we are asking the rich to pay more in taxes is not something they ever would have done in 2011. if you remember, math by details in the sitdo

. and they may be up against terry mcauliffe, the democrat who represents everything about the clinton/obama democratic party that the people in south side virginia can't stand, that they don't like. let's see -- >> he's a classic northern virginia guy. he works in washington. he's a bedroom community guy. which is fair enough, but they don't like it. >> and i think howard is exactly right. this is going to be a real dynamic test for the gop on the national level, not just for virginia, but how -- >> guess who else is going to be -- his wife perhaps. bill clinton will be in there campaigning. showing he's still got the chops. >> nobody has raised more money i don't think in the history of the planet for the clintons than terry mcauliffe. >> and we have cory booker running -- >> both of these are within easy traveling distance of this desk, which makes it great. >> going to take the train or the car? >> i don't know. the mobile "hardball" mobile. >> is cuccinelli far right? >> cuccinelli is a conservative individual. >> he's a far right guy. thank you. kid get his gun right after conception o
it was good to see president clinton golfing with president obama today because president clinton was able to do this. he was able to triang late in his second term. he was in there to build legacy and i think that's something that president obama has got to take into store and i hope he continues to get advice from president clinton. >> good point. because it goes on speaking of former presidents, because george w. bush got re-elected in 2004 and he and the republicans were prepared to implement the agenda he ran on, elections of consequences. remember that famous soundbyte? obama ran on higher taxes for the wealthy and won. lz, shouldn't he be making the same argument? that is what he ran on. >> absolutely. you know what i find interesting, if you look at the statistics, many of the blue states that supported president obama are some of the richest states in the country. and so not only did you have him defeat romney pretty handedly in the electoral college, but people willing to sacrifice their own money to make sure that president obama, his policies made it to the white house. you kno
, that the clinton tax cuts did it, why doesn't barack obama say let's have back all of the clinton tax hikes? let's have back all of the clinton tax increases object on everybody and we'll have a boom because he knows in his heart what he knew in 2010. you raise taxes on everybody, and a weak economy like we've got and you will send it into the dumpster. that's what he's threatening to do. >> that's a fair point. that's the reason it's a weak economy. when bill clinton raised taes and ended up with a surplus, conservatives like yourself loved the fact we had a surplus underather than under the last o administrations. we now have a $16 trillion national debt. >> one question, lanny. under bill clinton, they cut defense spending from reagan 6% of gdp to 3%. cut it in half as a percentage of the economy. that's why he got a balanced budget. he hatched defense. >> we've got to take a break. guys, stay there. by the way, don't forget, bill clinton had newt gingrich and they were a big part of it. actually, clinton sat down with gingrich. i don't see # i don't see that happening here. governor palin sa
both presidents clinton and obama. he's now a professor at george washington university. thanks for your wisdom. >> hi, eliot. >> eliot: the reception that ambassador rice is getting on the hill is almost unprecedented unprecedented. i don't remember an u.s. diplomat being roughed up this way, is there a historical metaphor for this? >> not recently. i think in terms of the senate interfering, if you want to say that, you have to go back to john tower in 1989. i mean, politics is a contact sport, eliot. you know that as well as anybody. >> eliot: yes. >> i think this is just a gauntlet that susan rice is forced to go through as she works towards--demonstrates that she would be a fine and outstanding secretary of state. >> eliot: it seems to me the legitimate questions that might be asked, who prepared the talking point? who changed the talking point as we understand it, perhaps to take out what the c.i.a. believed and what other intelligence sources believed indicating this was not just a spontaneous up rising or protest. those are legitimate questions, but they have nothing to
ambassador rice, secretary clinton, president obama day after day after day issuing warnings to assad. you can see the good it's done. he continues to slaughter his own people. >> sean: some sources are saying we may be sending our carriers and we may be, in fact, making some military moves. i don't know if it's going to be too late. we'll have to watch and monitor and pray those weapons don't get used. >> sean: let me ask you. this whole campaign, there was a war on women and the majority of the discussion democrat with free contraception for women, 9 bucks a month for birth control pills. now we've got more morsi mobs, muslim brother hood mobs raping women in public. i haven't heard a peep out of the president. he asked mubarak to go. he's not asking morsi to go. the military has been taken over. the new constitution calls for shuria. where is the president and the feminist movement? >> we have all been focused on the fiscal cliff as we should be, but we're looking at a national security cliff coming as well, bus you've got the middle east basically in many ways spiraling out of control.
options to secure syria's chemical and biological weapons. president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton both issued warnings to syria monday after intelligence picked up signs the assad regime might be making preparations of some kind with its large stockpile of chemical weapons. >> i want to make it absolutely clear to assad and those under his command the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable. >> meanwhile, "the new york times" reports russia appears to be weakening in its steadfast support for president assad. the senior turkish official says moscow agreed to a new approach that would seek ways to persuade assad to relinquish power. >>> kate middleton remains in a london hospital today as the world learns she is expecting. there is a sign of how much thins changed since another royal pregnancy, the one that would lead to the birth of her husband, prince william. remember this? >> lady diana spencer became the pri
of state hillary clinton is weighing in on two major mid east situations, both with great u.s. interest involved. amid reports the obama administration is preparing to recognize syria's opposition counsel as the legitimate representative of the people, clinton notes rebels are now able to hold their ground and take the fight to government forces. >> we have been deeply involved in helping to stand them up, and we're going to carefully consider what more we can do. >> and on iran's nuclear ambitions, clinton says with the u.s. election over, now is the time to see if there's hope for negotiating in good faith. >> there is still a window of opportunity to reach some kind of resolution. >>> all right. back to main street u.s.a. yesterday in sandy stricken new jersey and new york a secret santa was handing out $100 bills. the anonymous missouri man sought out people who had been devastated by hurricane sandy. and while he plans to hand out $100,000 in total, he says it's not about the money, it's about committing random acts of kindness. which he surely did. >>> and speaking of random acts,
reaction is that he drew the conclusion that i think a normal human being would draw from hillary clinton and president obama's warm endorsement of his mediation role and the gaza is real conflict. it is amazing to me that even though they have criticized him their restraint in that criticism is really remarkable. because what the president did was throw down the gauntlet ii st., i am ferrule. their response has been lukewarm understandably because we do have larger fish to fry, like the peace with egypt and israel and we don't wwnt egypt to become syria or chaotic. still, what he did was amazing. >> she was brilliant. he negotiated this deal between israel and tomas. within 24 hours a declared himself anew that he had the united states under a barrel. >> and the imf. >> and the imf and everyone else because no one wants war in the middle east command he needs a billion and a half dollars a month. lou: the imf reminding today that the good behavior will determine the course of $5 million tranche as they like to refer to this. let's turn to the united nations tomorrow, palestinian to limit
clinton. today president obama expressed confidence in her despite strong opposition from some in the g.o.p. more on that coming up inside fox report. meantime, bloomberg news is reporting after an interview with the president that he is considering the vogue editor and chief for ambassador to either the united kingdom or france. those are the kind of alabamaships that go to big donors she has been one of the top political supporters and fundraiser. asked jay carney about this report today he neither confirmed or denied. the nfl player who murdered his girlfriend and then killed himself apparently spent some time before the crime at another woman's apartment. details on that and what his own mother says she saw him do on the day that ended in blood. and word police here in new york city have now caught the suspect who is accused of pushing somebody right in front of a subway. and wait until you hear where they found him. that's ahead from the journalists of fox news on this tuesday fox report. can i help you? i heard you guys can ship ground for less than the ups store. that's right. i'
. her president, former president bill clinton, was president obama's key surrogate during this election cycle, setting the stage for president obama to return the favor in 2016. if she so decides to run. remember earlier this week, she was at the save and center for middle east policy and they ran that glossy video that felt like a campaign video in which she was praised by a number of officials, including president benjamin netanyahu. the stage sbing set f that's what she decides. if you go deeper into that poll, 66% of women say she should run, so higher than the national average. that would be one of her core constituencies. those close to me tell me when she steps down she'll focus on resting. >> to be frank, though, i think she's deserved a well-deserved rest. >> reporter: absolutely. i gave birth to my daughter on may 18th, five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.

for you sos i got it right but i read this today: >> cenk: now do you understand that? the clinton era rates are 39.5 wear. all along, president obama was saying i'm taking away the bush tax cuts, we're going back to the clinton era rates right? all of a sudden not really going back to the clinton era rates. that's why i was saying you know what, they might increase the rates because president obama has said it way too many times not to increase the rates at all, but although as we've sheen you, they've also hint haded they might lower rates. he's not going to go back up and take the bush tax cuts away. the final might be 37%. politico same reporting as the wall street journal on that. they say it might be about $1.2 trillion in tax increases. they say realistically it could be closer to a trillion dollars. that's similar to what we've been hearing. the democrats are supposed to have leverage, but looks like they'll get the same trillion dollars that president obama has always been asking for. finally, or two final notes on this we've got the $1.2 trillion in cuts that we might be gett
hillary clinton said that the use of chemical weapons is a red line while president obama said that the use of chemical weapons would bring about severe consequences. now what exactly that means is not clear but this is really the most muscular type of phrase and language that both clinton and obama have used to describe the war in syria. it does appear the united states is taking a sort of more proactive approach. it doesn't appear the u.s. is getting involved militarily but this language is different than the sort of diplomatic language we've seen in the past. this comes as syrian rebels are pushing in on damascus. we're also hearing that the u.s. and nato have decided to send patriot missiles to the turkish border along syria to help turkey prevent any type of attack from syrian jets. this is all as part of a plan to sort of put more and more pressure militarily pressure on the assad regime. whether or not it will change the outcome of this war or change the, sort of result of what the assad regime is doing is still very much unclear, jon. jon: the death toll continues to ri

successful terms, they had growth. clinton 4% growth. more than 4% and reagan chose to that. that buoyed public sentiment that helped their approval ratings throughout enormous revenues that they could use. if obama gets a recession in the second term after the slow growth of the first term, he's dead in the water. he can't afford that. >> yes, but ball there's a whole economic school, we call it keynesian, which says that when the economy is slow and not growing, government has to step in and play the role of the engine of growth, by spending money. this is something that the democrats believe in religiously, and they think that the only way to get the economy growing again is to spend a lot of money from the government. that's where the problem comes in. >> all right. when we come back. as he prepares for a second term. president obama faces the prospect of assembling a whole new national security team. a closer look who could fill the top post and a preview of the controversies to come next. ♪ [ male announcer ] the way it moves. the way it cleans. everything about the oral-b power

. president barack obama signalled he wouldn't insist tax rates on upper income americans rise to clinton era peaks as part of the deal. the white house's flexibility first described by erskine bowles after meetings with mr. obama and others confirmed by administration officials could envision tax rates increasing from current levels to less than clinton era levels. so 37, 38%, is that enough for you? >> i would like to see the bush tax cuts for the upper income go away completely. with many people, myself included we don't want to negotiate against ourselves at the moment. there is going to have to be give and take. this will be a compromise. neither party can do it alone. there are pieces of this which i don't like. but those tax rates during the clinton years were pretty prosperous years. i think the american people would be happy to go back to the prosperity we enjoyed then. they weren't a damper on the economy. i think it fair that we go back to those rates. >> i understand not wanting to negotiate with yourselves but you have to negotiate with somebody. so -- yes or no -- would you sett
of state hillary clinton unveiled the obama administration's road map to increase access to treatment and eliminate new infriction-- infections in children by 2015. >> so as we continue to drive down the number of new infections and drive up the number of people on treatment, eventually we'll be able to treat more people than become infected every year. that will be the tipping point. we will then get ahead of the pandemic and an aids-free generation will be in our sight. >> it's been more than 30 years since the first known aids cases appeared in 1981. in the early years contracting aids was a near certain death sentence. >> there are few scarier things than the discovery of a new killer disease, one medical science admits is mostly a mystery for which there is no certain cause or cure. doctors have called the new one bizarre, frustrating, >> suarez: but wider access to drugs in recent years has changed the way people live with aids. deaths have dropped by 26% from their highest levels in 2005. new infection rates have fallen by 50% in more than two dozen countries -- 13 of them in s
intelligence agencies that were worrying an these warnings came from hillary clinton, from president obama, and now from n nato. what do we make of this and also the fact that russia has been helpful according to the white house, very helpful, be in trying to persuade syria that this is a red line syria should not cross? >> the noose is tightening. the russians understand the arc on assad is moving south quickly. the turks have finally requested at least defensive patriot batteries, probably patriot batteries designed to deal with missiles rather than aircraft. should they be anti-aircraft patriots you could see an offensive capacity and capability. the rebels in syria are gaining force, maybe a little more coherens to their opposition and against the backdrop of all of this you have another -- yet another report of the prospects of agents being mixed with respect to chemical weapons capacity. i think this is the red line. it's a nightmarish scenario because it would force some sort of military intervention should these chemical weapons and their deployed either artillery shells or cones,
hillary clinton is weighing in on two major mideast situations, both with great u.s. interests involved. amid reports the obama administration is preparing to recognize syria's opposition council as the legitimate representative of the people, clinton notes rebels are now able to hold their ground and take the fight to government forces. >> we have been deeply involved in helping to stand them up, and we're going to carefully consider what more we can do. >>> and on iran's nuclear ambitions, clinton says with the u.s. election over, now's the time to see if there's any hope for negotiating in good faith. >> there is still a window of opportunity to reach some kind of resolution. >>> and back here to main street, usa, a couple of great stories for you. yesterday in sandy-stricken new jersey and new york, a secret santa was handing out $100 bills. the anonymous missouri man sought out people who had been devastated by hurricane sandy. and while he plans to hand out $100,000 in total, he says it's not about the money. it's about committing random acts of kindness. >>> speaking of random ac
in some foundation office, i don't think so. >> and beth, you've got to think that bill clinton is probably not talking her out of it. >> bill clinton would love hillary clinton to be president. in fact, the fact that he was so magnanimous with president obama this past campaign was a miracle to a lot of us who covered hillary clinton in '08 because i think the president, bill clinton took his wife's loss harder than she did in that campaign against then senator obama. look, what i think is going to happen is hillary has all the cards to her. she is going to take a year off. she can sleep. she can write a book. she can do speaking appearances. she can be a mom to chelsea. >> maybe a grandmom. >> maybe a grandma. i don't know anything about that. and she can still decide to run. this is going to kill all these other democrats who are hoping to run because the field is frozen until she makes a decision. >> i want to talk to you about that, because you raise an interesting point there are a lot of folks who are suggesting one of the reasons we spend so much time talking about hilla
're a long away from that. let's just look at earned taxes, lower than they were under president clinton put in place ten years ago. and all president obama is saying let's go from 35% to the top earners, to 39.6%, same as it was under president clinton, the economy did well. it is more than just a drop in the bucket. just raising rates on people making over 250,000, would be a trillion deficit -- >> a trillion dollars, henry, is nothing to be sniffed at. some urged the party to extend the bush-era tax cuts, for the households that earn less than $250,000, to insure the taxes don't go up. who cares anyway? >> sure, there is a point in there. i might dispute the numbers. i would argue as the members of my party, i would argue that we have a spending problem. as opposed to a revenue problem. to my friend steve's remark, about the clinton tax rates, that sounds great to go back to 39%. and yes, that was a time of balanced budgets. but actually, those balanced budgets bear little resemblance to the tax rates. in the clinton years, in the latter clinton years, one, we were in peace time. and two,
. as for hillary clinton's position at the state department, the national journal reports that president obama is, quote, genuinely conflicted over whether to pick kerry or united nations ambassador susan rice. president obama said yesterday that republican attacks against susan rice will not influence his decision. jo ari, what do you make of the chuck hagel situation with his name floating into the mix now? >> i thinkç it's a good faith efforts to take in a wide range of views. we know that president obama in his first term, obviously, went with secretary gates despite his ties to republican foreign policy. hagel is more of a progressive voice, but i'm not sure that a second-term obama presidency reaches back to another republican defense figure. >> and as to the john kerry/susan rice dilemma that the president faces, he says that the attacks on susan rice won't affect his decision one way or another. it won't force his hand to nominate her, and it won't affect his decision to go with senator kerry, if that's what he chooses to do. is he going to be able to incredibly present his choice as hi

't explain how that happened. and that's a great job? very possible that president obama will nominate susan rice for the secretary of state position that hillary clinton is vacating that would obviously be another in-your-face to the republicans. it doesn't seem that mr. obama wants to run the country efficiently. i guess i could be wrong, maybe he will compromise in the end. but now we have a my way or the highway situation. the problem with the president is the highway passes through the republic majority house of representatives. these people aren't going to okay more than a trillion dollars in tax hikes with no spending cuts or entitlement reform. it's not going to happen. and mr. obama knows it's not going to happen. so why are we playing this foolish game? the american people deserve better than this. we have huge financial problems in this country. problems that every single one of us are going to be feeling if the u.s. dollar tanks come on, mr. president, put something reasonable. get off the politics. and that's the memo. finally somebody asked me and i appreciate that bill. let's
a deadly nerve gas. so the direct warnings president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton delivered to syria come as that country's ally, russia, signals that the use of chemical weapons is a red line for their own support for syria. joining me now is nbc's chief pentagon correspondent jim jim miklaszewski. a speech that really didn't have anything having to do with what syria, clearly there's intelligence on the ground that has u.s. officials concerned. >> reporter: that's right, chuck. all the latest intelligence indicates that the u.s., nato, and particularly the syrian people are really staring the worst case scenario directly in the face. just about the time rebel forces started to make significant advances in the capital da m damascus, u.s. officials tell nbc news that the assad regime informed its chemical weapons corps to get prepared. and just about that time, u.s. intelligence noticed a flurry of activity around several of the chemical weapons sites, an indication, perhaps, that the chemical corps is moving two precan cursor chemicals to the same locations to weaponize art
